"THE PRIEST'S UNBRELLA" Top 5 Page for this destination Ethiopia Favorite Tip by DAO

Ethiopia General: 73 reviews and 91 photos

Favorite thing: One day when I went to the historic Entoto Church high above Addis Ababa, I came across this scene. The head Priest was looking at ornamental umbrellas to use in a large procession for an upcoming Holiday in the Orthodox Church calendar. I have never seen so many brightly coloured umbrellas in my life. The Priest was examining each and every one and there seemed to be hundreds. When I came back about and hour later. Yep, the Priest was still looking them over!

    That will probably have kept him busy for some time :-)
